Identify participants more clearly: Entrepreneur, Policy-Maker or Lobbyist.
The one thing I really enjoyed at DAA was the interaction with other entrepreneurs facing similar problems in the digital single market, and the input we developed from there for policy-makers. What I did not enjoy was being part of a session which was clearly full of corporate lobbyists seeking to protect their existing business. It would help to clearly identify delegates for example by different colours for example for the lanyards.

what about civil society organisations?

Interesting suggestion. Perhaps it would have been useful to have some "horizontal" sessions eg for Entrepreneurs, Policy Makers/Civil Servants, Civi Society??
